    ABSTRACT: This program targets development of a high-performance thermoelectric (TE) cooler with a figure-of-merit, ZT>3, which greatly exceeds currently available technology. The cooler is fabricated using Group II-VI compound semiconductors, i.e. HgCdSe or HgCdTe, using a low dimensional structure know as a"superlattice"(SL). The proposed TE coolers will operate at temperatures ranging from 5 ...

  2. Oxidation Resistant Heating Elements for High Temperature Wind Tunnels

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: AF131189

    ABSTRACT: High temperature wind tunnels are needed to replicate the environment vehicles will experience during high Mach number flight. Of particular interest are sustained airflow temperatures of 2800 F. Although this level of performance has been obtained by two of NASA's wind tunnel facilities (i.e. High Temperature Tunnel (HTT) at Langley Research Center and Hypersonic Tunnel Facility ...

  3. METSI: Metadata Establishing Trust in SOA-based Information

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF112041

    ABSTRACT: Operating in a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) environment is risky because there is limited ability to gauge the quality of information, especially information that has been transformed multiple times as it flows within the SOA. To address this problem, CFDRC built METSI (Metadata Establishing Trust in SOA-based Information) to quantify the Quality of Information (QoI) using seven ...

  7. High-Fidelity Analysis of Deployed Bay Doors on Modern High-Speed Aircraft

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF131004

    ABSTRACT: Unsteady aerodynamic loading and flow separation on modern high speed aircraft weapons bay doors can excite aircraft structural modes and lead to buffet, flutter, or fatigue-induced failures. Rigorous numerical simulations, wind tunnel and flight tests are typically carried out to investigate the aerodynamic loading on the doors, but analyses often only consider steady loads on rigid do ...

  8. Predictive Proficiency and Readiness Evaluation (PrePARE)

    SBC: Tier 1 Performance Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF131026

    ABSTRACT: In order to make flight combat training more efficient and effective, many strides have been made in the areas of role-based competency definition through the use of Mission-Essential Competencies (MECs), live-virtual-constructive (LVC) simulation for realistic practice and assessment in various environments, and performance data capture for after-action review. To take full advantage o ...

  9. Synthetic Language Interface Toolkit for Chat (SynChat)

    SBC: Tier 1 Performance Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF131028

    ABSTRACT: The high operations tempo, frequent deployments and other fact-of-life events limit the availability for team training. To mitigate this training availability problem, training simulations need to incorporate constructive entities as teammates in a way that enhances training for the human participants. In modern operational environments text messaging communications are increasingly com ...

  10. An Interactive Voxel Model Posing and Anthropometric Morphing Tool

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF131029

    ABSTRACT: Electromagnetic (EM) devices are used increasingly in society, with applications in communication, medicine, security, and defense, among others. To study safety and potential health hazards of EM devices, high-fidelity voxelized anatomical body models have been used in conjunction with sophisticated EM and thermal solvers to predict energy absorption rates and tissue temperature elevat ...
